I have driven tractors around the farm and have my telehandler ticket. I also have my B+E and am confident driving trailers. My tractor work is limited to yard work, for example TMR wagon but I am willing to learn.
Predominantly sheep based experience but I enjoy milking and due to recurring staff shortages have been relied upon to do both milking shifts every day for the past few months. Good attention to detail and passionate about animal welfare. Good hygiene standards and willing to muck in and do all jobs including rearing youngstock. Have worked on high biosecurity calf rearing unit. Have AI ticket but haven't served enough cows to be confident. Would like to complete a refresher course. No foot trimming experience but willing to learn.
Walk my dogs, dog agility, sea swimming, running
My background is predominantly sheep-based however I took a second job on an organic dairy farm in Wales to fit around shepherding and managing a suckler herd back in 2018. I helped milk twice a day and disbudded calves. Currently, I am in charge of milking 250 HF and 50 Guernseys and spent 3 months last summer taking responsibility for the milking and general management of the herd after the herdsperson became injured. I have experience with assisting at calving and have also worked in the calf rearing unit and am confident and capable of tubing calves and training onto buckets, castrating, disbudding etc. I am enthusiastic, passionate and driven. I am willing and eager to learn and always seek out training opportunities and CPD.
